Went on a site survey; got destroyed by chiggers n ticks more than I ever have on any single hike. Land owners were clear cutters. Awful.

The red was looking great yesterday. Wish I had time to go to Muir today.

personal safety
« on: April 16, 2018, 08:26:20 PM »

Have you all seen these?  https://www.roadid.com/

I am an avid runner, as well as regular solo backpacker, so I decided to take the plunge.  I just had my Road ID arrive today and it is the best use of $20 I've spent in a while.  I will have a little more peace of mind on my next solo backpacking trip or the next time I'm 10 miles from home on my weekend long run. Take a minute and check it out.

I wear one everyday when I run, ski or backpack.  I got my first one years ago when they first started operation in Cincy.  I wear the smaller one with the silicon rubber band.  Pretty much last forever.

I wear one 24/7, but I have the diabetes. The RoadID is more durable than any other type of ID bracelet I've seen.
